LOCK this thing.shoot it,kill it,fry it, put it out of its misery,lol

I would think this is the reason that Todd would prefer to keep topics posted on the forums just lottery related.

Debates of a non lottery related  issue can go on for days and weeks.

    Guesser Writes: 

    Sooooooo......  You are on the bandwagon that has tried and convicted the Duke boys I take it ?

    What about their lives ?

    Gee, what if they are innocent ?

     

    Again, someone on this board who likes to take a few words from a post and use them to serve his own agenda.  Did I say that?  Did I say they were guilty?  I just reread my post and this is what I read:

    "No matter what really happened at Duke, it is a sad time for women.  It hurts every victim of violent crime whose credibility will be put under a glaring spotlight as she struggles just to keep her sanity and her dignity."       

    Don't you think that someone who yells "Rape!" is hurting other women too?  I said I didn't know what really happened and neither do you.  I also indicated at first that a poor Black stripper vs 3 White students from prominent families isn't an even match in the courtroom.   Anyone who lives in the United States of America knows that to be true.  It's not about Race either.  (O.J. looks Black to me!) She has a long record of emotional problems and past accusations of assault, so even if they did attack her, her credibility would be destroyed.  Whether it's a rape, the murder of a spouse, drowning of your children or any crime where another trial has proved the accuser to be a liar, it casts a dark shadow on future victims.  After Susan Smith cried helplessly on TV "find my babies" and then they discovered it was all an act, I pitied any woman whose children were missing.

    In fact, until a few days ago when everyone kept bringing up this story (because of the Imus situation) I never even followed the Duke story.  So I'm not on any bandwagon, Guesser, but judging from numerous threads, you certainly have a very large chip on your shoulder.

      Sounds to me like everyone's getting their LP thongs in an uproar here.

      The question was "should Imus be allowed to work your state lottery".

      I don't care as long as they don't show his face on TV to scare the kids or let him draw the balls where his shedding eyebrow hairs might weigh some balls down and affect the outcome. 

      This whole Imus issue is much ado about nothing.  I hear worse than this every single day on Comedy Central TV and everyone's fair game in comedy.  This Political Correct crap is stealing away one of our best assets for coping with diversity...humor.

        I just think it was idiotic for anyone to compare a group of young women representing their school in a basketball tournaments with a couple strippers preforming as a private party for a bunch of horney college guys. 

        It just illustrate that old saying "better to say nothing and thought to be stupid than to speak out and remove all doubts".

        There is something perverted about an old guys seeing young women he has never met or had any contact with as "hoes".  It's even more perverted to call it humor.

                    Hurray! 

                    I am usually standing by Rick's side (figuratively speaking) on this board, but not in this case.  I agree with your comment RJOh and TnTea's answer that I couldn't have put it any better.  I didn't think what Imus said was funny at all.

                    I lost a post (everyone is probably saying "thank goodness") after my last comment.  What I wrote was that I spent Thanksgiving Day with a Black family.  I don't really know a lot of Black people and grew up in a mostly White area. The few Blacks I knew as a child talked & dressed just like the other kids.  Anyway, last year my family had a reunion in Virginia.  I was unable to attend and a Black coworker invited me to her brother's home. She has 8 siblings, so it was a big family get together since they have children and friends stopped by during the evening.  She has a son in college who is 19 or 20.  Guess what?  I never once heard a single person use the "N" word or call anyone a "Ho" or use the word "Nappy-Headed."  I doubt if when I went to the bathroom someone asked "Where'd that honky chick come from?" These were educated people with family values. The people everyone keeps saying "uses those words among themselves" are not any more representative of a Black family than are White men using the "F" word all the time and calling women "B****es."  IMHO,  men and women who feel the need to express themselves with profanity, pornography, racial slurs and offensive language have no class.  It's not Black or White - it's just ignorant behavior and a-holes come in all colors.

                          Like I said, you sensitive types should stay away from Comedy Clubs, avoid watching stand-up comedy on Comedy Central and the day time talk shows.  Because you're going to hear "bitches" and "hoes" said more than your tender ears can handle.  There might even be a reference to nappy hair during the day.

                          Who's in charge of your rules on "Politically Correct"?

                          I never even heard of this clown before this week so I'm hardly going to defend him.

                          Get a life people.  There's a whole lot more important things in life than what a shock jock says.

                          End of discussion from me.

                            I dont think Imus should of been fired. There are people who

                            have done and said worse than what he did. And nothing ever

                            happened to them.  And now there saying there still not done

                            with him.

                            Imus should have been thrown off-the-air a long time ago. His direspect of other people has a far reaching impact on all of us. This one disrespectful voice is heard by thousands of listeners, who over time begin to mimic Imus, so just when you thought you shut him up by changing the Channel, you run across one of his listeners who repeats the words that Imus said on his show. This might not be so bad except their are other people in earshot of this Imus listener, who overhear the discourse, some of whom will repeat the words they overheard, when the Imus listener spoke, and so on and so forth. So begins the progression where people who don't even know who Imus is, will hears his words of disrespect that he has spoken.

                            A mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions!
